INTRODUCTION 



ECONOMIC CENSUSES OVER TIME 

The early beginnings of America's industrial output were first 
measured in the United States in the 1810 Decennial Census 
and again in 1 820, when questions on manufacturing were in- 
cluded with those for population. Beginning with the 1840 
Decennial Census, there were enumerations of manufactures and 
mineral industries at 10-year intervals up to and including the 
year 1 900 for manufactures and 1 940 for mineral industries. 
The latter census was again taken for 1 954, 1 958, 1 963, and 
1967. 

Because of the increasing dominance of manufacturing in the 
early 20th century, Congress directed that quinquennial cen- 
suses of manufactures be taken beginning in 1905. However, 
from 1919 through 1 939, these censuses were conducted every 
2 years. The need for war-related current surveys in the early 
1 940's postponed the next census of manufactures until 1 948 
(for 1 947). That census was again taken for 1 954, 1 958, 1 963, 
and 1967. 

Retail and wholesale trade data were first collected in 1 930, 
and in 1933 information on selected service industries was 
added to the data-collection operation. These business censuses, 
as they were called, were again taken for 1 935, 1 939 (as part 
of the 1 940 decennial program), 1 948, 1 954, 1 958, 1 963, and 
1967. 

Information on construction industries was first obtained in 
1 930 and again for 1 935 and 1 939. Data for the full spectrum 
of construction industries were not gathered again until 1 968 
(for 1967). 

The need for transportation data to supplement information 
available from existing governmental or private sources was 
recognized by Congress in the late 1950's and early 1960's 
The census of transportation (consisting of several surveys) was 
first taken for 1963 and again for 1967. 

Since 1 967, all of the above censuses have been taken quin- 
quennially as part of the Census Bureau's economic census pro- 
gram. (For the 1977 censuses, the coverage of the service in- 
dustries was broadened from "selected services" to all services, 
except religious organizations and private households. A total 
of 41 additional four-digit standard industrial classifications 1 
(SIC's) in 7 SIC major groups was added to the scope of the cen- 
sus. While most of the industries included for the first time for 
1977 were covered again for 1982, some were not, i.e., 
hospitals; elementary and secondary schools; colleges, univer- 
sities, and professional schools; junior colleges and technical 
institutes; labor unions and similar labor organizations; and 
political organizations.)

The first manufacturing census for an outlying area was con- 
ducted in Puerto Rico for the year 1909. Thereafter, with the 
exception of 1929, a census was taken at 10-year intervals 
through 1 949. The first censuses of retail trade, wholesale trade, 
and selected service industries in Puerto Rico were conducted 
for 1 939. These censuses also were taken for the years 1 949, 
1954, 1958, 1963, and 1967. A census of construction in- 
dustries was first introduced in Puerto Rico for 1 967. These cen- 
suses of Puerto Rico have been taken since then for the years 
1972, 1977, and 1982. 

Censuses of manufactures, retail trade, wholesale trade, and 
selected service industries were conducted in Guam and the 
Virgin Islands of the United States for 1 958, 1 963, 1 967, 1 972, 
1 977, and 1 982. Censuses of mineral industries were taken in 
the Virgin Islands of the United States for the years 1 958, 1 963, 
and 1 967 but not since that time. A census of construction in- 
dustries was also undertaken in these areas for 1972, 1977, 
and 1982. 

Retail trade, wholesale trade, selected service industries, 
manufacturing, and construction industries were canvassed for 
the first time in the Northern Mariana Islands in 1 983 (for 1 982). 

For 1982, the economic censuses and agriculture censuses 
were conducted concurrently. 



USES OF THE ECONOMIC CENSUSES 

The economic censuses are the major source for facts about 
the structure and functioning of the Nation's economy and pro- 
vide essential information for government, business, industry, 
and the general public. They provide an important part of the 
framework for such composite measures as the gross national 
product, input-output measures, indexes of industrial produc- 
tion, and indexes measuring productivity and price levels. Infor- 
mation from the censuses is used to establish sampling frames 
and as benchmarks for current surveys of business activity, 
which are essential for measuring short-term economic 
conditions. 

State and local governments use census data to assess 
business activities within their jurisdictions. The private sector 
uses the data to forecast general economic conditions; analyze 
sales performance; lay out sales territories; allocate funds for 
advertising; decide on locations for new plants, warehouses, or 
stores; and measure potential markets in terms of size, 
geographic areas, kinds of business, and kinds of products made 
or sold. 

Following every census, thousands of businesses and other 
users purchase reports. Likewise, census facts are widely 
disseminated by trade associations, business journals, and 
newspapers. Volumes containing census statistics are available 
in most major public and college libraries. All 1982 data are 
available on microfiche from the U.S. Government Printing 
Office and most data on computer tape from the Census Bureau. 
Finally, the more than 50 State Data Centers also are suppliers 
of economic census statistics.

INTRODUCTION III 



AUTHORITY AND SCOPE OF THE ECONOMIC 
CENSUSES 

The economic censuses are required by law under title 1 3 of 
the United States Code, sections 131, 191, and 224, which 
directs that they be taken at 5-year intervals for the years 
ending in 2 and 7. The 1982 Economic Censuses covered 
manufacturing, mining, construction industries, retail trade, 
wholesale trade, service industries, and selected transportation 
activities. Special programs also cover minority-owned and 
women-owned businesses. The next economic censuses are 
scheduled to be taken in 1988 for the year 1987. 

CENSUS OF RETAIL TRADE 

The 1 982 Census of Retail Trade, part of the 1 982 Economic 
Censuses, covered retail trade as defined in the Standard In- 
dustrial Classification (SIC) Manual. 1 It included all 
establishments primarily engaged in selling merchandise for per- 
sonal or household consumption and rendering services inciden- 
tal to the sale of the goods. The census excluded governmental 
organizations classified in the covered industries except for 
liquor stores operated by State and local governments. Data for 
direct sellers (SIC 5963) with no paid employees and post 
exchanges, ship stores, and similar establishments operated on 
military posts by agencies of the Federal Government are not 
included. The basic tabulations in this report do not include data 
for establishments which are auxiliary (primary function is pro- 
viding a service, such as warehouses) to retail establishments 
within the same organization. Data for auxiliaries are presented 
for selected industrial classifications in tables included in the 
United States Summary report of the Geographic Area series, 
RC82-A-52. Data for auxiliaries are presented for more detailed 
industry breakdowns in a subsequent report issued as part of 
the 1 982 Enterprise Statistics reports. 

For the 1 982 Census of Retail Trade, large- and medium-size 
firms, plus all firms known to operate more than one establish- 
ment, were sent questionnaires to be completed and returned 
to the Bureau by mail. For most very small firms, including those 
with no paid employees, data from existing administrative 
records of other Federal agencies were used instead. These 
records provided basic information on location, kind of business, 
sales, payroll, number of employees, and legal form of organiza- 
tion. In addition, more detailed information for selected kinds 
of business was obtained on the various questionnaires. 

Appendix A gives a more detailed explanation of census 
coverage and methodology. 

MAJOR RETAIL CENTERS 

This report represents a recompilation of data collected in the 
1 982 Census of Retail Trade into the two types of areas which 
have been delineated for the report: (1 ) central business districts 
(CBD's); and (2) major retail centers (MRC's). The report covers 
each standard metropolitan statistical area (SMSA) in the State 
and presents statistics for these concentrations of retail stores 
located in each SMSA. 



Central Business District 

A central business district, as defined by the Bureau, is the 
defined downtown retail area of an SMSA central city, or other 
SMSA city of 50,000 persons or more. A CBD is an area of very 
high land valuation; high concentration of retail businesses, 
offices, theaters, hotels, and "service" businesses; and high traf- 
fic flow. It is defined by existing census tract boundaries and 
consists of one or more whole census tracts, except for a few 
CBD's with census tracts which include areas outside the cor- 
porate limits of the city. In these cases, the CBD consists of only 
those portions of the census tracts within the corporate limits 
of the city. Census tracts are small, relatively permanent areas 
into which large cities and adjacent areas have been divided to 
show comparable small-area statistics. Data for CBD's are 
published only in reports of the census of retail trade. 

Major Retail Center 

A major retail center is a concentration of at least 25 retail 
stores 2 located inside an SMSA but outside a CBD. At least one 
of the 25 stores must be a general merchandise store (SIC 53) 
with a minimum of 1 00,000 square feet of total under-roof floor 
space. 3 MRC's include planned suburban shopping centers as 
well as unplanned centers such as older "string streets" (con- 
tinuous businesses along a thoroughfare with few cross streets 
containing any businesses) and combinations of planned and 
unplanned centers. Where the MRC is a planned center, the 
boundaries encompass all retail stores in the center. Where the 
MRC is an unplanned center, each block within the boundaries 
should have at least one general merchandise store (SIC 53); 
apparel store (SIC 56); furniture, home furnishings and equip- 
ment store (SIC 57); or miscellaneous shopping goods store (SIC 
594). MRC's are defined in SMSA's existing as of January 1, 
1 982. Data for MRC's are published only in reports of the cen- 
sus of retail trade. 

Delineation 

The delineation of central business districts and major retail 
centers was determined in consultation with local census 
statistical areas committees (CSAC's). A few CSAC's chose not 
to participate in the CBD delineation program so some eligible 
cities do not have CBD's. In areas where CSAC's did not par- 
ticipate in the MRC delineation program, the Bureau asked other 
local organizations to delineate MRC's and list stores in the 
delineated areas, following Bureau guidelines. Due to funding 
limitations, Bureau employees could not delineate MRC's in areas 
for which outside participation could not be obtained. Accord- 
ingly, no MRC statistics are presented in this report for a few 
areas which may have had qualifying MRC's. 

Approximately 95 percent of all areas which may have had 
MRC's were delineated by CSAC's or by other local organiza- 
tions. Appendix J identifies which areas were delineated by 
CSAC's; which areas were delineated by other interested 
organizations; and which areas were not delineated, either 
because there were no MRC's or because MRC delineation par- 
ticipation could not be obtained for the area.

"An MRC which had 25 stores or more at time enumeration was done may 
have had less than 25 stores at end of 1 982. Thus, data may be shown for 
a few MRC's which have less than 25 stores. 

'Minimum square footage criterion was waived in a few special cases at 
request of local CSAC. 



IV INTRODUCTION 



MAJOR RETAIL CENTERS 



Historical Data 

The report on major retail centers was begun as a part of the 
1954 Census of Business, which provided data for 95 CBD's. 
In the 1958 Census of Business, data were published for 109 
CBD's and, for the first time, for 472 MRC's located in 97 
SMSA's. The 1963 Census of Business included data for 131 
CBD's and 972 MRC's located in 1 1 6 SMSA's. In the 1 967 Cen- 
sus of Business, the program was expanded to cover all 230 
SMSA's, containing 134 CBD's and 1,556 MRC's. The 1972 
Census of Retail Trade covered 259 SMSA's, containing 144 
CBD's and 2,137 MRC's. 

For the first time, in the 1 977 Census of Retail Trade, CBD's 
and MRC's were delineated by using the definition described 
above. These new definitions caused a slight modification in the 
scope of the 1 977 program, which covered 272 SMSA's con- 
taining 386 CBD's and 1,464 MRC's. 

There was no change in the scope of the program in the 1 982 
Census of Retail Trade. The number of SMSA's covered in- 
creased to 31 5, and included 456 CBD's and approximately 
1,550 MRC's. 

CENSUS DISCLOSURE RULES 

In accordance with Federal law governing census reports, no 
data are published that would disclose the operations of an in- 
dividual establishment or business. However, the number of 
establishments in a kind-of-business classification is not con- 
sidered a disclosure so this item may be released even though 
other information is withheld. 

For every CBD and MRC, statistics on sales, payroll, and 
number of employees are presented for all kind-of-business lines 
which do not require suppression to avoid disclosing data for 
individual companies. However, since most MRC's and several 
CBD's tend to have a relatively small number of establishments, 
it generally is not possible to provide separate kind-of-business 
data (except for establishment counts) for these small areas 
without disclosing the operations of individual establishments. 
For this reason, additional sales data are shown for the follow- 
ing kind-of-business groups: 

1. Convenience goods stores, i.e., food stores (SIC 54), 
eating and drinking places (SIC 58), and drug and pro- 
prietary stores (SIC 591). 

2. Shopping goods (GAF) stores, i.e., general merchandise 
stores (SIC 53), apparel and accessory stores (SIC 56), 
furniture, home furnishings, and equipment stores (SIC 
57), and miscellaneous shopping goods stores (SIC 594). 

3. All other stores (SIC's 52, 55, and 59, except 591 and 
594). 



GEOGRAPHIC AREAS COVERED 

This series of reports presents data for establishments located 
in CBD's and MRC's in SMSA's in each State. The SMSA's in- 
cluded in the 1982 MRC program are those defined by the 
Office of Management and Budget as of January 1 ,1982, ex- 
cept for three areas which did not have any MRC's or CBD's 
for 1982: Glens Falls, N.Y.; Jacksonville, N.C.; and Santa Cruz, 
Calif. 



MRC statistics are presented for all areas within SMSA's for 
which a local group delineated qualifying MRC's. For any MRC's 
which existed in 1977 and which still qualified but were not 
delineated for the 1982 program, unpublished 1982 MRC 
statistics are available. These statistics may be obtained by sub- 
mitting a written request to the Chief, Business Division, Bureau 
of the Census, Washington, D.C. 20233. 

CBD statistics are presented for all eligible cities for which the 
local CSAC defined the area known as the "central business 
district." 

For all SMSA's in the State for which MRC and/or CBD data 
are presented, data are also shown for each SMSA, each cen- 
tral city, and all other SMSA cities of 50,000 inhabitants or more 
for which a CBD was defined by a local CSAC. Data for SMSA's 
which cross State lines appear only in the State report for the 
State in which the SMSA is primarily located. 

DESCRIPTIONS OF SPECIFIC CENTRAL BUSINESS 
DISTRICTS AND MAJOR RETAIL CENTERS 

The boundaries of each central business district and major 
retail center are described in appendix I. Boundaries begin with 
the north boundary and continue clockwise through all the 
boundaries. 

DOLLAR VALUES 

All dollar values presented in this report are expressed in cur- 
rent dollars, i.e., 1982 data are expressed in 1982 dollars and 
1977 data in 1977 dollars. Consequently, when making com- 
parisons to prior years, users should consider the inflation that 
has occurred. 

RELIABILITY OF DATA 

All data compiled in this report originated from either census 
questionnaires or administrative records of other Federal agen- 
cies and, therefore, are not subject to sampling errors. However, 
the data are subject to nonsampling errors. Nonsampling errors 
can be attributed to many sources: inability to identify all cases 
in the actual universe; definition and classification difficulties; 
differences in the interpretation of questions; errors in recording 
or coding the data obtained; and other errors of collection, 
response, coverage, and estimation for missing or misreported 
data. 

The accuracy of these tabulated data is determined by the joint 
effects of the various nonsampling errors. No direct measure- 
ment of these effects has been obtained except for estimation 
of missing or misreported data. However, precautionary steps 
were taken in all phases of the collection, processing, and tabula- 
tion of the data in an effort to minimize the effects of nonsam- 
pling errors. 

The Bureau of the Census obtains on computer tape limited 
information extracted from administrative records of other 
Federal agencies. This information is used in conjunction with 
other information available to the Census Bureau to develop 
estimates for nonemployers, small employers, and other 
establishments for which responses were not received in time 
for publication. See appendix A for a more complete explana- 
tion of census coverage and methodology.

MAJOR RETAIL CENTERS 



MARYLAND- HAGERSTOWN SMSA 21-17 



APPENDIX A. 
General Explanation 



CENSUS COVERAGE AND METHODOLOGY 

Structure and method of enumeration— Firms in the 1 982 Cen- 
sus of Retail Trade were divided into the nonmail universe and 
mail universe. The coverage and the method of obtaining 
census information from each follow: 

1 . The nonmail universe consists of firms which were not 

required to file a regular census return and includes: 

a . All nonemployers, i.e., all firms with no paid employees 
during 1 982. Sales information for them was obtained 
from administrative records of other Federal agencies. 
Although consisting of a large number of firms, 
nonemployers account for less than 5 percent of total 
retail sales. 

The census included only those retail nonemployer 
firms which reported a sales volume of $ 1 ,000 or more 
during 1 982 plus firms in operation for less than the 
full year that reported sales which, if projected to an 
annual basis, would have reached a total of $ 1 ,000 or 
more. This change in qualifications for the 1 982 cen- 
sus is described in the Comparability of the 1 977 and 
1 982 Censuses section below. 

b. Selected small employers, i.e., single-establishment 
firms with payroll below a specified cutoff. (The term 
"employers" refers to all business firms with paid 
employees at any time during 1 982 as shown in the 
active administrative records of other Federal agencies.) 
Although the payroll cutoff varied by kind of business, 
small employers generally included firms with one to 
three employees and represented about 1 percent of 
total retail sales. 

Data on sales, payroll, and employment for employer 
firms below the cutoff were derived or estimated from 
the administrative records of other Federal agencies, 
except for a 10-percent sample which was included in 
the mail universe. 

2 . The mail universe consists of firms for which information 
was obtained basically by means of a mail canvass and 
includes: 

a. Large employers, i.e., all employer firms above the 
payroll size cutoff established to separate large from 
small employers. Within this category, a report of com- 
pany organization is conducted periodically to identify 
firms which operated establishments at more than one 
location and to obtain information on payroll and mid- 
March employment at each location. The 1 981 Report 
of Company Organization was used as a coverage 
check in the census. In the census mailing package con- 
taining the appropriate 1 982 questionnaires, firms were 
sent a form to use in updating the list of establishments 
with those opened since 1981. 

b . The 10-percent sample of small employers referred to 
in section 1b above which were sent the census mail- 
ing packages containing the appropriate 1982 
questionnaires. 



Method of classifying kinds of business — The retail trade 
classifications for all establishments were based on the Standard 
Industrial Classification (SIC) Manual. 1 However, the method of 
assigning these classifications, and the level of detail at which 
establishments were classified, differed between the nonmail 
and mail universes as follows: 

1 . The nonmail universe. 

a. All nonemployers were classified inside or outside of 
retail trade on the basis of information obtained from 
other Federal agencies. Data are not provided for 
nonemployers by kind of business as planned for 1 982 
because a substantial number of the nonemployer 
records, obtained from the Internal Revenue Service 
(IRS), were miscoded by the IRS into miscellaneous 
categories rather than being classified in the specific 
kind of business. 

b . Selected small employers were classified on the basis 
of the most current census kind-of-business classifica- 
tion available from one of the Bureau's current sample 
surveys or the 1977 census. Otherwise, the classifica- 
tion was obtained from the administrative records of 
other Federal agencies. 

If the census or administrative record classifications 
proved inadequate (none corresponded to a census 
classification in the detail required for employers), the 
firm was sent a brief inquiry requesting information 
necessary to assign a 1982 census kind-of-business 
code. 

2 . Establishments in the mail universe were classified on the 
basis of their self designation and answers to questions 
on sales by merchandise lines and other special inquiries. 

COMPARABILITY OF THE I977 AND I982 
CENSUSES 

The 1977 and 1982 censuses were conducted under similar 
conditions and procedures except for the following: 

Geographic areas— The boundaries of a number of areas for 
which data are shown in the 1 982 census are not the same as 
in the 1977 census because of annexations, other boundary 
changes, redefinitions of SMSA's, and changes in qualifying 
criteria since 1977. 

Also, improved methods, used in the 1 982 census for deter- 
mining the proper geographic areas into which businesses are 
tabulated within a given county, resulted in a number of 
businesses that were not tabulated as part of the "remainder 
of county" statistics in previous censuses being included within 
the "remainder of county" for 1982. 

Leased departments— In 1 977 and in prior censuses, data for 
leased departments were consolidated with the data for stores 



'Standard Industrial Classification Manual: 1972. For sale by Superin- 
tendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 
20402. Stock No. 041-001-00066-6. 1977 Supplement. Stock No. 
003-005-00176-0. 



1AJOR RETAIL CENTERS 



APPENDIX A A-1 



in which they were located. In the 1 982 census, each leased 
department was treated as a separate establishment and was 
classified according to the kind of business it conducted. For 
example, in the 1 977 reports, data for a leased department sell- 
ing shoes were included in the kind-of-business statistics of the 
lessor store. For the 1 982 reports, however, a leased depart- 
ment selling shoes would be considered a separate retail 
establishment under the "shoe store" classification. It should 
also be noted that in the 1 982 classifications (with the excep- 
tion of department stores for which leased department data are 
recognized for classification purposes), the procedure which 
separated the leased department from the main store might have 
affected the kind-of-business code assigned to a relatively small 
number of main stores, because the coding procedure did not 
take into account the lines of merchandise carried by the 
leased department. 

Due to the relatively high level of leased department activity 
in department stores, department store sales summaries for 
1982 have been separately presented for the following 
classifications: 

Department stores (incl. leased depts.) 
Department stores (excl. leased depts.) 

Nonemployer firms— In 1977, the census included any retail 
nonemployer firm which reported a sales volume of $2,500 or 
more, plus firms in operation for less than the full year that 
reported sales which, if projected to an annual basis, would have 
reached a total of $2,500 or more. In the 1982 census, 
nonemployer firms are included if, on an annual basis, they 
reported a sales volume of at least $1,000. This change was 
made so that establishments will be included in the retail cen- 
sus based on the same criterion used for including establishments 
in the other economic censuses, i.e., $1,000. Had the 1982 
criterion been applied in the 1977 Census of Retail Trade, an 
additional 62,000 nonemployers with sales of $120.6 million 
would have been included. 

In 1977 and prior censuses, the combined data for all 
establishments (nonemployer firms plus establishments of 
employer firms) were presented for selected kind-of-business 
classifications, including all 2-digit major industry groups. For 
these censuses, data for nonemployer firms were obtained from 
administrative records of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 
based on business tax returns. For 1 982, data for nonemployers 
and the combined data for all establishments are presented 
only at the retail trade total level for all geographic areas. These 
data could not be published by kind of business as planned 
because many businesses were miscoded by the IRS into various 
miscellaneous categories rather than in the specific kind of 
business. As a result, when the IRS supplied the Bureau of the 
Census with the kind-of-business codes derived from informa- 
tion reported by businesses for 1982 on IRS form 1040, 
schedule C, the Bureau found that there were proportionately 
far more businesses classified in miscellaneous categories for 
1 982 than for 1 977. The Bureau of the Census and the IRS are 
taking steps to ensure that data can be published for all 
establishments by kind of business in the 1 987 and subsequent 
censuses. 



Central business districts— In 1982, two sets of kind-of- 
business data are provided for central business districts (CBD's): 
"adjusted" and "unadjusted." In the 1 977 reports, only unad- 
justed data were provided. Unadjusted CBD data refer to the 



summation of data for those establishments which could be iden- 
tified, based on address, as being in the CBD. However, some 
records, particularly those of small establishments for which in- 
formation is derived from administrative records of other Federal 
agencies, have addresses that are inadequate for determining 
if they are in the CBD. 

Therefore, for 1 982 the Bureau proportionately allocated data 
to the CBD for establishments for which address records were 
inadequate to determine if they were inside or outside the CBD. 
The resulting "adjusted" data provide more realistic estimates 
of retail trade in each CBD. The adjustment process allocated 
data for the establishments that could not be coded in each CBD 
city to either "inside" or "outside" the CBD in the same ratio 
as the associated data for establishments with addresses that 
could be coded. The adjustment process was separately applied 
to each data item (number of establishments, sales, annual 
payroll, and number of employees) for each kind-of-business level 
for which data are presented for each CBD. 

The 1977 CBD statistics and the 1 982 "unadjusted" statistics 
are based on comparable procedures and are believed to be 
directly comparable. The 1982 "unadjusted" statistics are 
shown to provide a means of comparing 1977 and 1982 CBD 
data and to provide measures (the differences between the 
adjusted and unadjusted data) of the estimation for 
establishments with inadequate addresses. 

Nonstore retailers (SIC 596)— Although nonstore retailers (mail 
order houses, automatic merchandising machine operators, and 
direct selling establishments) were included in the 1 977 Cen- 
sus of Retail Trade, data for nonstore retailers were excluded 
from the Major Retail Centers reports. For 1982, nonstore 
retailers are also included in the Major Retail Centers reports. 
Nonstore retailers account for a negligible portion of total retail 
trade in most MRC's and CBD's. 



EXPLANATION OF TERMS 

Establishments— An establishment is a single physical loca- 
tion at which business is conducted. It is not necessarily iden- 
tical with a company or enterprise, which may consist of one 
establishment or more. Census of retail trade figures represent 
a summary of reports for individual establishments rather than 
companies. For cases where a census report was received, 
separate information was obtained for each location where 
business was conducted. When administrative records of other 
Federal agencies were used instead of a census report, no in- 
formation was available on the number of locations operated. 
Estimates of this number were derived from a sample and will 
be provided in the retail trade report, Miscellaneous Subjects, 
RC82-I-4. Each retail establishment was tabulated according to 
the physical location at which the business was conducted. The 
count of establishments in this publication represents the number 
in business at the end of the year. 

A comparison of the number of establishments in business ai 
the end of the year versus the number active any time durinj 
the year for the United States as a whole is presented fo 
establishments with payroll, by kind-of-business group, and fo 
all establishments, only for total retail trade, in appendix G o 
the United States Summary report of the Geographic Area series 
RC82-A-52. 

When two activities or more were carried on at a single loca 
tion under a single ownership, all activities generally wer( 



A-2 APPENDIX A 



MAJOR RETAIL CENTERS 



grouped together as a single establishment. The entire establish- 
ment was classified on the basis of its major activity and all data 
for it were included in that classification. However, when distinct 
and separate economic activities (for which different industry 
classification codes were appropriate) were conducted under the 
same ownership at a single location, and when conditions 
prescribed by the SIC manual for recognizing the existence of 
more than one establishment were met, separate establishment 
reports for each of the different activities were obtained in the 
census. 



Firms— A firm is a business organization or entity consisting 
of one domestic establishment (location) or more under com- 
mon ownership or control. For economic census purposes, the 
terms firm and company are synonymous. 



Sales— Sales include merchandise sold for cash or credit at 
retail and wholesale by establishments primarily engaged in retail 
trade; amounts received from customers for layaway purchases; 
receipts from rental or leasing of vehicles, equipment, instru- 
ments, tools, etc.; receipts for delivery, installation, 
maintenance, repair, alteration, storage, and other services; and 
gasoline, liquor, tobacco, and other excise taxes which are paid 
by the manufacturer or wholesaler and passed on to the retailer. 

Sales are net after deductions for refunds and allowances for 
merchandise returned by customers. Trade-in allowances are not 
deducted from total sales. Total sales do not include carrying 
or other credit charges; sales (or other) taxes collected from 
customers and forwarded to taxing authorities; commissions 
from vending machine operators; and nonoperating income from 
such sources as investments, rental or sale of real estate, etc. 

Sales in this report do not include retail sales made by 
manufacturers, wholesalers, service establishments, or other 
businesses whose primary activity is other than retail trade. They 
do include receipts other than from the sale of merchandise at 
retail, e.g., service receipts, sales to industrial users, and sales 
to other retailers, by establishments primarily engaged in retail 
trade. 

Although the count of establishments in this report represents 
the number in business at the end of the year, the sales figures 
include sales of all establishments in business at any time dur- 
ing the year. 



Annual payroll— Payroll includes all forms of compensation, 
such as salaries, wages, commissions, bonuses, vacation 
allowances, sick leave pay, and the value of payments in kind 
(e.g., free meals and lodgings), paid during the year to all 
employees. Tips and gratuities received by employees from 
patrons and reported to employers are included. For corporations, 
it includes amounts paid to officers and executives; for unincor- 
porated businesses, it does not include profit or other compen- 
sation of proprietors or partners. Payroll is reported before deduc- 
tions for social security, income tax, insurance, union dues, etc. 
This definition of payroll is the same as that used by the IRS on 
form 941 . 

First quarter payroll— This item consists of payroll, as defined 
above, paid to persons employed at any time during the quarter 
January to March 1982. 

Paid employees for pay period including March 12 — Paid 
employees consist of the full-time and part-time employees, 
including salaried officers and executives of corporations, who 
were on the payroll in the pay period including March 12. In- 
cluded are employees on paid sick leave, paid holidays, and paid 
vacations; not included are proprietors and partners of unincor- 
porated businesses. The definition of paid employees is the same 
as that used on IRS form 941. 

Auxiliary establishments— Each company included in this cen- 
sus was asked to identify and report separately those auxiliary 
locations whose primary functions were to manage, administer, 
service, or support the activities of the other establishments of 
the company. Data for auxiliaries which primarily service retail 
establishments are presented for selected industrial classifica- 
tions in tables included in the United States Summary report of 
the Geographic Area series, RC82-A-52. Data for auxiliaries are 
presented for more detailed industry breakdowns in a subsequent 
report issued as part of the 1982 Enterprise Statistics reports. 



ALL ESTABLISHMENTS VERSUS 
ESTABLISHMENTS WITH PAYROLL 

The tables in this report present data for two major categories 
of establishments: All establishments and establishments with 
payroll.

APPENDIX A A-3 



The term "all establishments" includes those without payroll 
("mom and pop" operators) and those with payroll. The number 
and sales of establishments without payroll is determined by sub- 
tracting data for establishments with payroll from data for all 
establishments. 

As shown in the table on the previous page: 

1 30 (Number of total establishments) 
- 117 (Number of establishments with payroll) 
13 (Number of establishments without payroll) 

The sales of the 13 establishments is $1,720 (000). 

As explained in the "Comparability of 1977 and 1982 Cen- 
suses," data are shown by kind of business only for 
establishments with payroll. 

KIND-OF-BUSINESS CLASSIFICATIONS 

Retail trade, major groups 52 through 59 in the 1 972 SIC 
manual, includes establishments engaged in selling merchandise 
for personal or household consumption and in rendering services 
incidental to the sale of the goods. Exceptions are necessitated 
by trade practices. For example, lumber yards and paint, glass, 
and wallpaper stores are included in retail trade if they sell to 
the general public, even if a higher proportion of their sales is 
made to contractors. Establishments engaged in selling products 
to the general public from displayed merchandise, such as 
typewriters, stationery, or gasoline, are classified in retail trade 
even though such products may not be used for personal or 
household consumption. However, establishments that sell 
exclusively to business establishments, institutional and indus- 
trial users, or contractors are classified in wholesale trade. 

Other important characteristics of retail trade establishments 
are that they are usually fixed places of business; they are 
engaged in activities to attract the general public to buy; they 
buy or receive as well as sell merchandise; they may process 
their products, although processing is incidental or subordinate 
to selling; and they are considered as retail in the trade. Not all 
of these characteristics need be present and some are modified 
by trade practice. 

Establishments covered by the census were assigned kind-of- 
business classifications according to the industry classifications 
defined in the 1 972 SIC manual. When a more detailed classifica- 
tion was needed than that defined in the SIC manual, more kinds 
of business were identified within an SIC. 

In general, retail establishments were classified according 
to the principal lines of commodities sold (groceries, hardware, 
etc.), or the usual trade designation (drug store, cigar 
store, etc.). 

Kind-of-business classifications are not interchangeable with 
commodity classifications; most businesses sell several kinds 
of commodities. The kind-of-business code generally reflects 
either the individual commodity or the commodity group which 
is the primary source of the establishment's business. Thus, the 
classification of establishments by kind of business generally 
does not make it possible to determine either the number of 
establishments handling a particular commodity or the sales of 
that commodity. For example, the food stores classification ex- 
cludes stores selling food if the sale of food is not the primary 
source of receipts; moreover, even though stores are classified 
as food stores, some of their receipts may be derived from the 
sale of nonfood products. (Information on the extent to which 



various broad groups of commodities, or merchandise lines, sold 
by different kinds of business is available in the 1 982 Census 
of Retail Trade report, Merchandise Line Sales, RC82-I-3.) 

Building Materials, Hardware, Garden Supply, and 
Mobile Home Dealers 
(SIC Major Group 52) 

This major group includes retail establishments primarily 
engaged in selling lumber and other building materials; paint, 
glass, and wallpaper; hardware; nursery stock; lawn and garden 
supplies; and mobile homes. It includes lumber and other building 
materials dealers and paint, glass, and wallpaper stores selling 
to the general public, even if sales to contractors account for 
a larger proportion of total sales; these establishments are known 
as retail in the trade. Establishments primarily selling these prod- 
ucts but not selling to the general public are classified in 
wholesale trade. 

Hardware stores (SIC 525) — Establishments primarily selling 
a number of basic hardware lines such as tools, builders' hard- 
ware, paint and glass, housewares and household appliances, 
cutlery, and roofing materials, no one of which accounts for 50 
percent or more of the sales of the establishments. 

General Merchandise Group Stores 
(SIC Major Group 53) 

This major group includes retail stores which sell a number 
of lines of merchandise, such as dry goods, apparel and acces- 
sories, furniture and home furnishings, small wares, hardware, 
and food. The stores included in this group are known as depart- 
ment stores, variety stores, general merchandise stores, general 
stores, etc. Establishments primarily engaged in selling used 
general merchandise are classified in SIC 593, and those sell- 
ing general merchandise by mail, vending machine, or direct sell- 
ing are classified in SIC 596. 

Department stores (SIC 531) — Establishments normally 
employing 25 people or more, having sales of apparel and soft 
goods combined amounting to 20 percent or more of total sales, 
and selling each of the following lines of merchandise: 

1 . Furniture, home furnishings, appliances, and radio and TV 
sets. 

2. A general line of apparel for the family. 

3. Household linens and dry goods. 

The employment and lines of merchandise sold in leased 
departments are both taken into account when classifying a 
department store. 

To qualify as a department store, sales of each of the lines 
listed above must be less than 80 percent of total store sales. 
An establishment with total sales of $10 million or more is 
classified as a department store even if sales of one of the mer- 
chandise lines listed above exceed the maximum percent of total- 
sales, provided that the combined sales of the other two groups 
are $ 1 million or more. Relatively few stores are included in this 
classification as a result of this special rule and most of those 
which are would otherwise have been classified in the apparel 
group (SIC major group 56). 



A-4 APPENDIX A 



MAJOR RETAIL CENTERS 



Due to the relatively high level of leased department activity 
in department stores, department store sales have been 
separately presented for the following classifications: 

Department stores (incl. leased depts.) 
Department stores (excl. leased depts.) 

Variety stores (SIC 533)— Establishments engaged in the retail 
sale of a variety of merchandise in the low and popular price 
ranges. Sales usually are made on a cash-and-carry basis with 
the open selling method of display and customer selection of

line of merchandise, are not departmentalized, do not carry their 
own charge service, and do not deliver merchandise. 

Miscellaneous general merchandise stores (SIC 539)- 
Establishments primarily engaged in the retail sale of a general 
line of apparel, dry goods, hardware, homewares or home fur- 
nishings, groceries, and other lines in limited amounts. Stores 
selling commodities covered in the definition for department 
stores but normally having less than 25 employees, and stores 
usually known as country general stores are included here. Also 
included are most catalog showrooms and establishments whose 
sales of apparel or furniture and home furnishings exceed half 
of their total sales, providing that sales of the smaller of the two 
lines in combination with dry goods and household linens 
account for 20 percent or more of total sales.

eceipts from sales of groceries and food items for off-premise 
reparation and consumption are 50 percent or more of total 
ales.
